Featured Article: Keeping Your Sanity in EVE Online
New EVE Online Correspondent Andreas Sellin writes this look at keeping your own personal sanity intact when dealing with the high-risk world of EVE Online.

These days the world we live in seems pretty grim. You may be wondering if there is something better. If so, you should not jump into EVE Online, because that world makes the real world look like the garden of Eden. Smugglers, pirates, bounty hunters, thieves, scammers, mercenaries and suicide gankers are only some of the threats you will encounter in EVE. There is only one way to die in EVE and that is having your escape pod destroyed. That being said, the number of enemies who want to destroy your precious pod are almost infinite. If you are not discouraged and still interested in playing this game that obviously does something right considering the number of players it has, then I will try to give you a few pointers.

This week's Game of the Week is Aion: The Tower of Eternity.

Aion made it's way onto gamer's wish lists back in 2006 when NCsoft first displayed the game's stunning graphics and rare game play features, such as winged flight, at E3.

After years of development at NCsoft, Aion finally launched in Korea back in November, wit a fully localized English version set for release in the latter half of 2009.

While at GDC we sat in on a demonstration of the game and returned with video to share. Part one looks at setting, playable races, and the game's robust character creation. In part two we learn about flying, combat, and the massive battles in the region known as the Abyss.

Learn more about Aion, or check out our game list here.
